Scorned

Evil’s dark, sinister candle,

takes me hostage in its light.

So much despair to handle,

while traveling in the absence of sight.


Not a word, Not a whisper to comfort me.

My pertinacity instils that hope of survival.

Though I’m whipped by the curse of society,

and the continuous drones who grant me rival.


Hear not of thy speech or give me hope.

Fear, I have tasted in the valley of sin,

and though my  neck shall not feel life’s rope.

I’ll stroll by the river where no man has been.


I hear your words and dodge your daggers.

I will not stand on quick sand that buries deep,

and those who walk with a confident swagger.

Your time will come during a midnight sleep.


Though I face such grave discord in life.

My reproaching soul shall grant me strength,

and the iron giants of dastardly deeds,

shall not see the rebellious last of me.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
